How Do I Apply a Discord Template to a Server?


Scott Campbell

Are you looking to apply a Discord template to your server? Discord templates are a fantastic way to quickly set up and customize your server with pre-made settings and channels. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps of applying a Discord template to your server.

Step 1: Finding a Template

If you don’t have a template in mind, you can browse through the Discord Template Library or search for one on platforms like Reddit or Discord communities. Look for a template that suits your server’s theme and requirements.

Step 2: Creating a New Server

In order to apply a template, you need to create a new server or use an existing one. If you choose to create a new server, click on the ‘+’ button on the left-hand sidebar of your Discord home screen and select “Create My Own”. Enter the desired name and region for your server.

Step 3: Accessing Server Settings

To access the server settings, right-click on the server icon located in the left-hand sidebar and select “Server Settings” from the drop-down menu.


You need to have administrative permissions for the server in order to access and apply templates.

Step 4: Applying the Template

In the Server Settings menu, navigate to the “Overview” tab. Scroll down until you find “Template”.

Click on it.

  • A new window will appear with various templates that you can choose from. You can also paste a specific template code if someone shared it with you.
  • Browse through the available templates or enter the template code in case someone provided it.
  • Click on the template that you want to apply to your server.
  • A preview of the template will appear. If you are happy with it, click on the “Use Template” button located at the bottom right corner of the window.

Step 5: Confirming Template Application

After clicking on “Use Template”, a confirmation pop-up will appear asking for your final confirmation. This is to ensure that you don’t accidentally overwrite your existing server settings.

  • If you want to proceed: Click on “Sync Permissions” to apply the template’s roles and permissions to your server. This is recommended as it ensures that all members have the appropriate permissions set by the template creator.
  • If you don’t want to proceed: Click on “Cancel” and select a different template or make any required changes manually.

Step 6: Exploring Your New Server

Congratulations! You have successfully applied a Discord template to your server.

Take some time to explore and familiarize yourself with the new channels, roles, and settings that came with the template. You can customize them further according to your needs.


Remember, applying a template will overwrite any existing channels or settings in your server. Make sure to back up any important information before applying a new template.

With these simple steps, you can quickly apply a Discord template and save time setting up your server from scratch. Templates are an excellent resource for creating professional-looking servers tailored to specific themes or purposes. Happy customizing!
